Question about dress blues.
I'm going home today and my mom was wondering if I could wear my dress blue bravos.
And if I can, do I take my cover off on the plane or do I leave it on?

You can wear them . Yes take your cover off in the plane. Your not under arms and you are under cover.

I'm nervous about walking through the air port...lol soooooo many eyes.
also..my core frams..they got creases in them because the drill instructors made us step it out and basically run to graduation. I'm guessing I have to buy new ones...is there a place that I can get them cheaper?

Dont buy new ones. You may need to later but not right now. Save your money and find out how much youll be wearing them in the fleet first. I only wore mine to balls, inspections. and on duty. Not enough to warrant buying new ones.

Dress Blues Christmas Eve
I would just like to get a little more information on when a Marine can wear dress blues.
My son is coming home for Christmas (yayyyy!). Our Christmas Eve church service is fairly formal (suits for men, fancy dresses for women), as long as he wears the uniform appropriately, can he wear his dress blues? I am so proud of him, and I really want to see him in those blues before he deploys. Is is OK to ask him to bring them?
Sorry to be such a goofy mom.

Honestly, ma'am, as long as he wears it properly, he may wear whatever he wishes. There are specific uniforms for certain occasions, but the last Christmas at home for a while.. well, I have a VPMM of my own and I understand. Just send him our way if he has any questions, and if possible, maybe have a Marine with a lil' experience give him a look over... Just an idea. Merry Christmas to you and yours...
[He has certainly earned it.. ]

Just tell him to put on Ribbons/Badges instead of Medals for the Dress Blues, other then that ma'am, he can wear what ever uniform seems fit. Civilians really won't know the difference between the Dress Blue Alpha's and Bravo's so the ribbons on there won't make too much of a difference.

I never wore my coreframs enough that I considered replacing them. They have scuffs and creases on them, but I never justified the expense of replacing them. I've never been hit on inspections for those. One thing I did do was remove all that edge dressing the Drill Instructors made us put on because it got to a point where more layers made it look worse. I used some 100 grit sandpaper and it made quite a mess. I never managed to clean off the ridged portion but it wasn't that visible so I left it alone. I suggest you use some latex or nitrile gloves if you don't want that stuff embedded in your hands and fingernails for a week.

Your son should have that knowledge already, which also to my understanding is that when you go on leave around the holidays you will get recruiters assistance.
Hope this helps some.

Am I allowed to wear my dress blue bravos to my school? I'm on recruiters assistance but my recruiter will not be with me.

Yes you can, Dress Blue Alphas are the only dress uniform you cannot wear in public with the exception of special events. To be honest your recruiter would probably give you **** for it, but screw em you earned it you wear it.
